Hi Sue
Oh my goodness what a truly magnificent and beautiful card. The colours are so eye catching and that technique is fabulous. Can’t wait to settle down with a cuppa to see that video later on.
Apologies for my lengthy absence. Have been quite poorly and very much out of action. Hoping to be back amongst it now! I know I have missed so much. Today will be spent perusing the cards I have not yet had the pleasure of seeing and there are quite a few.
Happy Saturday everyone

Hello Sue,

Fabulous card today and quite an interesting technique for the background. I don't think I have ever seen the "ghosting" technique before so I will have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing the video, you always have something interesting to share with us.

Have a great weekend.

Good morning Sue and welcome back to PP.
I am so thrilled with today's card and especially the video as I have all the dies which doesn't happen very often. I'm not sure about the alcohol ink but I hope I have that too.
I love the ghosting and wonder who first thought of that. Was it you Sue?
Thank you so much for all you do for us,
Marie P.

Hi Sue - what a splendid card this is. I love the ghosting effect and the video makes it so simple to do. I haven't used alcohol inks for ages but what a great excuse to get them out again and the yupo paper is a must. Thank you for giving us yet more wonderful ideas. Sending best wishes

Hi Sue
Thank you for the great video showing the ghosting technique, it looks great but unfortunately I don’t have the necessary ingredients to try it out, love the card and the sentiment

Love and hugs to everyone

BenteS said...

A lovely card today - beautiful colours for the background :))
Thanks for showing us this great technique!

Ann Topp said...

Good Afternoon Sue. Beautiful sample... can't watch the video as the WiFi is not strong enough to stream. This would suit my husband down to the ground. He loves the wild life and I know he would love the sentiment....(private memories) won't go into detail lol. Ohhh nothing rude... just funny. Thankyou Sue. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Love this technique and I think I stand a better chance of getting this one right than trying to blend the colours with blending solution which just made a muddy mess! Thanks for the video.

Lisbeth said...

Stunning! And just so perfect for a male!

Suzzette Yandle said...

Ghosting - uhmmmmm. I have not tried this technique. I will try this one day. I do like how alcohol inks reacts on Yupo paper. Lots of fun. Great video. Thank you. Wonderful wild thing card design.

cr@fty said...

Hi Sue
Sorry I haven’t been posting for a couple of days I’m off work with Laryngitis and haven’t been on line. I’ve been catching up on the ones I haven’t seen and they are all gorgeous. I can’t wait to see today’s tutorial to find out how you’ve achieved the background.

I did not know you could use Archival ink to "lift" the image for this ghosted effect. Very neat. I watched the video the other day and really enjoyed learning a new technique.
Have a great weekend, Everyone. Heather feel better!

ursula said...

Beautiful card, I love this technique with the alcohol inks on the yupo paper...I have used a lifting ink on my stamp, never realised you could use archival ink like this, we learn something new every day....thank you Sue..luv Ursula xx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a great card and I love your herd of Zebras. I have used alcohol inks a lot but have never tried the ghosting technique. As I don't have any Yupo card I am wondering if it will work on other surfaces - will have to give it a try.

PP - missed you and am pleased that you are feeling better.
